$1,000,000,000 for each. :D

If you care so much about money why don't you work on Wall Street or be a neurosurgeon or something. :mad: You might take up a spot for pharmacy students who actually LIKE pharmacy.

Check out this website: http://www.salary.com

It lists the salaries for various professions according to area and nationwide standards. I hope you fine your dream job there :rolleyes:

A clinical pharmacist can also work in an ambulatory setting such as in asthma clinics, CF clinics, etc.

why the anger, indoflip? Zerox was just asking a simple question. Chill!! He or she didnt say that they were only interested in money, you assumed that.

I really hate to think that the people who post on these forums are going to be my coworkers. Although many people are really sweet, I have read so many posts from people who make my skin crawl. There is no need for animosity. Everyone here is interested in Pharmacy and are either in Pharm school or want to be in Pharm school, so lighten up and help each other out!

Why don't you explore this forum more thoroughly to see the focus of the multiple posts from our friend Zerox and let me know if I am wrong. Can't wait to work with you one day too! Have a great day! :thumbup:
